Uh Huh Her garnered immediate attention with its first EP, 2007's I See Red, which was followed by this year's equally acclaimed full-length debut, Common Reaction.
Why the love? The group's combination of buzzy guitars, electronica and catchy lyrics combine to create a sound that's instantly appealing—and not dragged down by being labeled as "chick music." A good example: The band's most widely heralded song to date, "Not a Love Song," a hard-driving, buzzy and synth-heavy song you can bob your head or shake your ass to, while still finding time to rock out. Camila Grey's silky smooth voice deserves some credit; combined with '80s synth flourishes, it makes the song strangely recognizable and yet surprisingly new.
